Wet and Dry Rot Treatment in Wareham

Wet and dry rot in Wareham can be quite common due to lack of sub floor ventilation. Because many of Wareham’s properties have had the ground around them raised they have blocked the air vents this causes moisture to be retained under the floor which creates the right conditions for wet and dry rot.

The problem affects all types of property, historic or modern. Humidity combined with lack of ventilation provides the ideal conditions for fungal attack.

Where Local Wareham Materials Came From?

Most of Wareham clay pits produced high quality clay ball which was mostly used for making pottery and porcelain and is also exported due to its high grade and only being found in a hand fall of locations around the world.

But pits like Sandford produced clay suitable for brick production like most pits they also manufactured the bricks on site using their own kilns due to the logistics of moving so much material.

Much of the sand used to build old and new Wareham still comes the same areas such as Holme and Binnegar Heath.

 How and When Wareham was Built.

Although Wareham can be traced back to Neolithic times and was used by many people over its history such as the Romans, Danes and Alfred the great. Its place in time has changed from a thriving port in the 9t h Century to a small market town and how over the next few centuries’ suffered a decline partly due to the river silting up and the growth of Poole. Due to Wareham being surrounded by marsh land growth in the area was limited and during the 13th Century the port of Poole and its surrounding areas quickly out grew Wareham.

As a site of strategic importance Wareham was superseded by the development of Corfe castle from the late 11th century. But the continued commercial importance of the town is seen in the establishment of Wareham castle within the South West corner of the defenses in the early 12th century

The parish has been subject to much modern boundary revision with the result that it has lost land to the West to Arne and gained land north of the River Piddle from the parishes of Morden and Wareham St. Martin.

Wareham itself and Northport, a small suburb on the North side of the River Piddle on the main road north out of the town, are the only major settlements. Northport was formerly a detached part of Wareham St. Martin.

The ancient borough status of Wareham was confirmed by a charter of Queen Anne in 1703. In 1762 a fire destroyed more than half the houses in the town and in the following year Commissioners were appointed by Act of Parliament to regulate rebuilding which was generally carried out in red brick and Purbeck limestone. So the devastated middle of the town was rebuilt as a pleasing assemblage of more or less contemporary buildings much of the town you see today is in the Georgian style.


Wareham had its first railway service in 1847 allowing for the transportation of goods and services to Poole docks and the main line to London.
